I love to see what animals visited camp after a fresh fallen snow. Looks like we had a bear wondering around in the middle of the night. I think some lucky guests even witnessed him on their way to the bathrooms.
Most of the snow is melting. I hear that the ice on the trail is fairly close to the top. We had a beautiful day in the 40s yesterday, I am sure that helped to melt a lot of it. The bad part is that the low was 22º so it would have frozen last night. We had plenty of hikers make it up with out any type of ice traction. I think you will be fine if you are making the trip up today.
Today is already starting out nicely. We had a beautiful sunrise to go with our coffee.
